I compared the way downloaded to JOSM and 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/29370058. It turned out that in 
JOSM only seven nodes are present compared to 23 on the web site. The 
nodes listed on the web site but not downloaded to JOSM are the problem. 
Browsing the xml for instance for 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.5/node/385719 shows a totally blank page.

* How are blank nodes removed?
* Is there a way to find such nodes in the database in the case there 
are more of them out there?
